Chris Jack set to be released by Saracens

2:31 pm on 26 February 2009

The former All Blacks lock Chris Jack and 14 teamates are to be released by English Premiership club Saracens and replaced by mainly South African players.

The BBC reports the players were told of the decision though the club won't confirm it is the case.

Saracens is largely run by a group of South African investors who also have a stake in South African Super 14 sides the Sharks and the Stormers in their home country.

Jack joined Saracens a year ago and has made 25 appearances for the club.
